Canon Thursday Pic 2011: #8

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by nathangardner, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc).

    Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!​
    This week's thread is starting extra early as I can hardly stay awake. I guess its Thursday already in England though, so let's get this thing started. I've had a busy week, as I'm sure many of you have, and didn't find too many opportunities to shoot this week, but I did get a photo I like. Hopefully you got a few spare minutes to get in a shot this week, let's see what you got.
    I got a few minutes this past weekend to practice with an 85mm lens a friend is letting me borrow. It sure helps when you've got such a great subject. Here's another one of Ollie...

  4. Sticking with the dog theme, this is Blackberry, our 8 month old female standard poodle, pictured this Saturday in our garden. After nearly 20 years of refusing, I finally gave in to my wife and we bought her last July: our first family dog. Whilst I'm not so cool on the nail varnish and ribbons that she comes back from the groomers wearing, overall she is a positive additional to our family. She's also a decidedly difficult subject to photograph, as she just sucks up light, forcing lots of over exposure and blown backgrounds.

    Saturday Night on Sunset in Hollywood
  7. My Grandmother was in town visiting and we went out to eat for lunch at a restaurant called Macaroni Grill. It's an Italian restaurant that largely serves different variations of pasta. I however chose to get the Margherita Pizza and I must say it was delicious. Those grape tomatoes on top really add an extra touch.

  8. While shooting some photographs after a snowstorm, I ran across this image of an oil leak in a parking lot. It is in keeping with the color theme that I have been pursuing.

  9. Scene: Boonville Hotel, the other night, Friday -- some plants growing out of test tubes in the bar area.

  11. Studio, Canon 50D, 50mm @ F8 1/160s
  12. 7D @ EF 24-70 2.8L. This time I won, the puppy face did not work out.
  13. Here's mine.
  14. Doing quite a bit of studio work at the moment, so since being made redundant i have decided to give it a go to earn some money. Converting the garage area into a studio but the set up is in my kitchen at the moment (i take it down when not in use). I try to be inventive and make the sessions fun for the kids, this is my daughter again(sorry) trying to get some jumping shots. As i cant shoot any faster than 1/160 because my flash trigger isnt that fast i find these quite tricky to focus. This is a good sharp one though.
  15. Hi All,
    This was taken using a 5DII with a 24-70 2.8 lens.
    All the best
  16. Ken, that's a clean shot for ISO 3200.
  17. Yet another cosplay photo -- from last Saturday.
    f/2.8, 1/50 sec, ISO 800
  18. My wife getting in on the act at my youngest son's birthday party. She had the 5D and 17-35 and I had the 30D with the sigmalux. It's great to be able to give her the camera now and take a break from shooting.
  19. I didn't have much time to shoot this week as it was my birthday and we were running all over the place! I now have both my boys in hockey and one also does basketball. Schedule is a BIT crazy! Last night however, I was washing dishes at my kitchen sink and looked up to see this beautiful doe in my backyard. You better believe I grabbed my camera and snapped a couple shots before she high tailed it back into the woods. :)

    really like Brad's pool hall shot and also Mark's ostrich portrait.....nice work guy's
    i spent about 3 hours in tinkers creek gorge yesterday and snapped this one at one of my favorite stops right below buttermilk falls....lots of downed trees and large branches from the ice storms this winter
  25. I got some shots of this guy in the trees, too, but had to crop in to about a 1 mp image. Guess I need some longer lenses to do bird photography, but I sort of like this shot of him getting an easy meal.
  26. Usually at the Missouri Botanical Garden, I photograph inside, but this caught my eye.
    We had spring for a while, but now late winter seems to have returned, but not for long, not for long. :)
  27. ISO 3200 on the 7D can be very clean. I only use ACR 6 to process my raws, including noise reduction. However, reducing a 18MP image to a tiny 700 px Web display image for this forum in itself provides a level of "noise reduction" too. (But still, my prior 40D at ISO 3200 is nearly unusable.)
    Your photos:
    Nathan - nice use of the 85L on the dog. Excellent.
    Brad - B&W interior pool, bar shot from the notorious SF 'hood is pretty good.
    Albert - looks like stage 1 thrusters of the Saturn V; excellent POV, Wally Schirra, Apollo 7. Wally flew Mercury, Gemini, & Apollo. What a man.
    James - proud poodle!
    DS M - flower could be sharper, camera movement? Wind? Or not enough sharpen in post?
    Tony C - image link broken (maybe blocked here -
    Horse - very pretty sunset over the lake & pier
    Jeff - gritty as usual, this time in L.A.
    Lupo - iconic foodie photog you are! Fun. Yum
    Spencer - delish pizza pie! Yum too.
    Indy - no photo, broken link? Or maybe your site blocked?
    David C - old, color roof house from France seemingly lost in the weeds
    Andre - nice stark B&W coverage child portrait with a great pose!
    Alex - humor, candy, fake sadness - buy this sugar for me please! LOL, well done.
    Mark K - tired dog, all chill, and narrow DOF; cool.
    Karen W - another "sparse" child portrait all active totally white-out background - nicely done with your technical studio skill.
    John H - deep B&W study of guitar player close-up on the strings, wonderful.
    Mark K - that ostrich! Again? Humorous to say the least. Something about those birds.
    Bueh - well done again; you know your craft and your subjects so well. Great work.
    Dan P - photo of an EOS photog; as it is, documentary style.
    Kerri - no photo. ?
    Robert C - intentional blur, striving for an effect on Philly?
    Stijn - Lock, Stock, & 2 Smoking Barrels ehh? Friends? Enemies? Bill collectors?
    Harry J - my man! ;-) Crisp, clear Miami Beach scene with nice"Rules" elements in effect. late afternoon? Slight tilt on the horizon.
    That was just the first page (the first 25 who posted)
  28. I'm definitely gonna have to start getting up earlier in the morning...

  30. Oso the Chihuahua letting a newcomer to the dog park know who the boss is. Pretty much the standard greeting from Oso. Some one abandoned Oso at the dog park and he was taken home by one of the regulars who has now found Oso a permanent home. Oso is now King of the dog park. Canon Xsi Vivitar 100-300 Zoom f/8 1/1000 ISO 400
  31. There was very uncertain weather in Yosemite, but a couple of the wack-meisters and I decided to chance it and go up Sunday and try for the "firefall" on Horsetail. It happenned for me on Tuesday. The falls were barely running, there was very little breeze, but the sun peeped through the clouds at just the right time. The woman who was singing "You Are My Sunshine" made it all happen.

  32. BTW, those bright red spots were really there. I don't know what they were or why they were so bright.

    A photo pushed to the extremes.
  34. It seems as though a tree grew through the fence and then succumbed to the fickle Southwest Kansas climate.

  40. Ken,
    I shot it at ISO 100, f/8 and 1/160s with the EF-S 55-250IS. It was a fairly windy afternoon, so that's my guess. General sharpening in post with PSE7 was applied.
    I guess I should have shot at ISO200 and had a higher shutter speed.
    Thanks for asking.
  41. Horse Engle--thanks for the photo!
    Your pix are always so beautiful and serene..
  42. Rebel XS with kit lens. EXIF attached.
  43. Been to Seattle many times and always stop to take a picture of it when passing by.
  44. Necropolis
  45. From a jr wrestling tournament this past week. It was unbelievable just how fast these kids were flying around the mat (not to mention how bad the lighting was!) next time I'm renting a 1.8! Great photos again this week everyone.
  46. Work has been taking up too much time, so an older one.
    From the day at the recording studio.

  51. Lots of great shots. Let's keep 'em comin'.
  52. I'm a little late on getting on board here. So many good images this week. I particularly like Jim Service's capture of Horsetail Fall. Mine is from a couple of weeks ago, from my stay on the Mendocino coast for Valentine's weekend. I love it there. Here I have captured the Point Arena Lighthouse in the light of an early morning glow.
  53. This was taken after a hike to "Top of the World" in Orange County S. California a couple of weeks ago (from Aliso & Woods Canyon side). Shot is looking East towards Santa Ana Mountains. Peak on the right is Santiago (5689ft, highest point in OC), the one on the left is Modjeska (5496ft) - collectively known as Saddleback because of the characteristic shape of the two peaks. Towards the right in the middle of the frame is the (pyramid shaped) Chet Holifield Federal Building in Laguna Niguel. The array of buildings on the left is Soka University in Aliso Viejo, with Aliso and Woods Canyon in the foreground. The original idea of this hike was to photograph Laguna Beach (behind me to the West), but this view was completely shrouded in fog.
    Shot with EOS 3, Fuji Velvia 50, EF 100mm macro lens. Sorry about the strange color cast, but I don't have any filters for this lens and what you see here is pretty close to the original the slide. Spent a little time trying to correct in post but gave up in the end.
  54. Canon EOS 40D, 50mm f1.4 lens, handheld, Auto WB
  55. Another of my favorite places in NC. The Valle Crucis Community Park. 2/22/2011
  56. I didn't shoot anything this past week so I will go back to my trip to the Eastern Sierra the week before. View is looking south over the west edge of Mono Lake toward the Southern Sierra with US 395 running through the pic. The dark area near the center of the photo is Lee Vining , CA.

    This was the view from the back of my house looking east yesterday. We had some interesting fronts moving through and here was a very isolated rainbow producing cloud set.
    Shot with the 7D and 24-70 at 24mm.
  59. How did I miss Thursday? Better late than never.

    Wild grape (?) in winter wrapped around a rusty heavy-duty chain in Chicago's Grant Park.
  61. I'm really loving the black and white images this week: Tenderloin pool hall, guitar player. I would love to hear more details about the B&W conversion methods used.
  62. look just a little manic :)
